This is the complete description of the cell line that you selected.
By clicking on a generic term (e.g., SPECIES) you will go to the corresponding index (e.g., index of species), while by clicking on a specific term (e.g., retinoblastoma) you will go to the list of corresponding cell lines (e.g., retionoblastoma cell lines).
TISSUE/ORGAN: lung, fetal
ECACC catalog code: 84101801

Description: Human fetal lung
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr P Jacobs, NIBSC, London, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Virus studies: rhinoviruses, production of viral vaccines
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46, diploid
Established from normal lung tissue of a 14 week old male fetus. The cells undergo between 60-70 population doublings before senescence. The virus susceptibility of this line to human viruses is similar to WI-38.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: A;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
